God, the Author...

It seems that every time I get in the car, the song "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield is on the radio. Real upbeat tempo and catchy lyrics...I've come to really like the song. But the more I hear it and the more I sing the words, it really has made me stop and think.

Here are some of the lyrics...

I am unwritten,
Can't read my mind
I'm undefined.
I'm just beginning,
the pen's in my hand
Ending unplanned.

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words
That you could not find.
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin.

No one else can feel it for you,
Only you can let it in.
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins,
The rest is still unwritten...

We do wake up every day and make choices as to what we're going to do that day, words we are going to speak, whether uplifting or hurtful, attitudes we are going to have, etc. But I'm so thankful that The Author has already penned each of my days in the manuscript of my life. The pages are not blank. He knows the choices I am going to make, and although some may break His heart, He has shown His grace and mercy to me and can make good come out of the messes I create. He knows the hairs on my head and cares for me even more than He cares for the little sparrows. How great and wonderful is that?! The ending is not unplanned. For those of us that have trusted Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will live in eternity with Him.

So, as you start your day, find strength in the fact that your Father has already gone before you. If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
